Hiltzik’s Latest “Business” Column: Another Leftist Political Rant That Uncritically Repeats Obama Talking Points
Michael Hiltzik gives readers the “business” again with another political rant that unquestioningly repeats Democrat talking points:
According to White House figures, the stimulus package would create or save a combined 424,000 jobs in those six states, so that makes nearly half a million Americans who no doubt will take it as an honor to be sacrificed for their governors’ stand on principle.
Wow. He’s seriously citing the “create or save” formulation as credible — the same formulation that caused Matt Welch to say: “Is there anyone listening to that that doesn’t see the B.S. in it?”
Yes, Matt. Yes, there is. And his (or one of them, anyway) is Michael Hiltzik.
All hail that vaunted media skepticism!
